Secure ordering
Credit Card Information. Craftails uses carefully selected service providers to process credit card transactions on our behalf (Mollie). When you provide credit card information to us on this website, that information goes directly from your computer to a server operated by our service provider. Our service provider uses your credit card information only to process your transaction and is contractually obligated to keep your personal information confidential. Although these service providers allow us access to most of the information you provide during a transaction, for your security, the service providers will not exchange credit card information with us. Password Protection. If you wish to become a Member of this site, you must enter a password. You are responsible for keeping the password secret. We are entitled to assume that someone logging on to our site using your password has the right to do so. You are personally responsible for the actions of anyone who accesses the site with your password, even if that person did not actually have permission from you. If you have reason to believe that your password has been compromised or used without your permission, you agree to notify us. We take precautions to provide a level of security commensurate with the sensitivity of the personal information we collect. We will collect personal information to the extent deemed reasonably necessary to serve you regarding the legitimate purposes of our business, as described above. We make every effort to ensure appropriate security measures to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of the information you provide to us. For example, our site uses the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) to encrypt your personal information before it is transmitted over the Internet. SSL technology is the standard for secure online transactions. When SSL is enabled, you will see a padlock at the top of your browser. Click on it for more information about the SSL digitally certified registration. You can also notice it by the search bar (URL), at the top of the browser. The link will begin with “https:” instead of “http:”. This means that you are in the secure mode. Because we use SSL, placing an order online at our website becomes as safe as transmitting credit card information over the phone. In addition, we take reasonable steps to assure ourselves that external business partners to whom we transfer data provide adequate protection for your personal information. Unfortunately, the transmission of information over the Internet is not completely secure. While we make every effort to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you provide on the Site. Any information you provide is at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we will use reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized access to the Site. In the unlikely event that the security of your personal information, which is in our possession, is compromised, we will notify you of this development. If notification is required, we will do our best to do so as quickly as is possible under the circumstances. If we are in possession of your email address, we will notify you by email.

Privacy Policy Changes
We reserve the right to modify this online privacy and security policy and any privacy notice by posting the modified version of this online privacy and security policy on our website. These changes will only apply to the personal information we collected after we post the modified version of our online privacy and security policy on our website.

By using the site after such changes are made, you agree that all personal information collected about you on this site after the modified version of our online privacy and security policy is posted on our website will be subject to the terms of the modified privacy and security policy. We encourage you to check this page frequently to ensure that you are always reading the most current version. Occasionally, for example, the law, technology or the way we work changes, requiring your permission to use the personal information we have collected from you in new or different ways. When this happens, we will send a notice by email or postal mail to the last email or postal address you provided to us. In it, we will ask you if you agree to the change. If you do not expressly agree to the change, we may at our option remove all or part of your personal data from our databases. This prevents your information from being used in ways you have not consented to.

You may access the current version of this online privacy and security policy at any time by clicking on the “Privacy Policy” link found at the bottom of each page of this website.

This online privacy and security policy was last amended on November 18, 2020 and has been in effect since that date.
